This hurts, but keeps us humble…

Much as we hate to, we have to bow to a Seattle Times' scoop this morning: Christine Gregoire, 42 votes behind in the governor's race after a count and a recount, told the Times' David Postman that if Democrats can't raise enough money to pay for a second statewide recount, she'll concede the race today (Friday). Weirdly, the state Democratic Party chair said any such concession wouldn't count, since it's not legally binding.

Regardless, we think they'll raise the cash.

Short takes and breaking news from the Washington Legislature and the state capital.
